Winemaker Notes

The Chateau Francs Magnus 2016 is very intense, with an inky color. Concentrated, this wine offers richness and aromatic power of pleasant aromas from the very beginning essentially dominated by crushed blackcurrants and black berries. After breathing a bit, the bouquet evolves offering a perfume of balsamic and Lebanese cedar. The palate is soft with a breadth of superb tannins. It is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

James Suckling
Plenty of good fruit here with ripe tannins and a berry, light vanilla character. Medium-bodied, clean and bright. Better than the 2015.
Barrel Sample: 91-92 Points

Chateau Francs Magnus, France
Known by a sale of the Comte de la Riviere in 1560, the area has a very old reputation. The propery, in which there are Gallo Roman silos, was built in 1850. The vineyard enjoys a privileged location; it is based directly on large stone quarries (about 2 acres) and identical to those of the plateau of Saint Emilion, managed for the conservation of the bottles. The limestone terroir brings minerality and elegance to the wines. Arnaud Roux-Oulie took over this vineyard in 2011 in the hopes of sharing his passion with fine wine lovers.

Red Wine

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
